4-H State Awards Program

A 4-H State Award is the highest honor bestowed on a Michigan 4-H member. 4-H State Award winners become part of an elite group of 4-H youth who have demonstrated the highest level of excellence in learning, leadership and service. The purpose of this awards program is to provide 4-H youth a learning opportunity where they can receive recognition while developing important life skills. Through the experience, members apply skills in communication, organization and self-motivation.  

A select number of 4-H State Award applicants are invited to attend the prestigious 4-H State Award Recognition Event held during 4-H Exploration Days as State Award delegates. 4-H State Award delegates are selected through an application process that showcases their knowledge, skills and experiences in their chosen 4-H project area. Participation in the State Awards Program helps all applicants develop workforce preparation skills such as communication, time management, goal setting and record keeping.

Recognition for 4-H State Award winners include a plaque and cash award. The program recognizes 4-H members in 19 project areas in both junior (13-15 years old) and senior (16-19 years old) age divisions, as well as a group award area (13-19 years old). 

Applications must be submitted by Feb. 1. Applications and instructions for submitting a 4-H State Award can be found at: https://www.canr.msu.edu/4_h_scholarships_and_recognition_program/4_h_awards_and_recognition_program
